A holiday camp in the 1950’s. The children seem to be playing a game – Ring-a-Ring-a-Rosies perhaps? – except this time its a pocket full of presents. Or rather a big fat sack! The children are quite formally dressed for the setting, as was the custom of the day. Father Xmas, too, is in his full outfit, with beard, boots and everything in between. No barefoot, shirtless wannabe in a cheap hat at this camp!
I thought I’d pick something for Xmas so went into my catalog and found this one. It was fuzzy, blue and faded but, as I love the energy in it, I decided to give it a go. I turned out rather well after about 30 minutes of fiddling.
